Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
I have answered many questions about CD and DVD drives. One of the most common problems is "My CD door doesn't open"
This can be caused by several things but I am going to explain how to open the door manually.
To do this requires a small Paperclip. Straighten the paperclip. Find the small hole in the CD or DVD door. Gemtly insert the paperclip and push on the button inside. If the drive does not have a mechanical problem the door will open.

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
hope this helps you
